All right guys, we're starting tomorrow at 9:00. Remember to bring: plenty of water, sunscreen, darts/blasters, money, and all that good stuff. We're going to be meeting in the same area we did last time, north of the playground by the woods.

Definite interest from me. If you brought it I'd like to check it out, and maybe buy some. On the topic of sales, I'm looking to buy some medium-wall PETG (the common airgun fit), around 6 feet? I'd also like to buy ~1 sq. ft. of 1/4" polycarb, random scraps would be just fine! Prices can be arranged through PM or at the war. Also, knowing that this is somewhat hard to find without online ordering, I have a bunch of sch.80 pvc, with perfect ID and OD, fits wonderfully in couplers. If there is interest I can get more too.

EDIT: I am also looking to purchase a titan tank, if I could get a pricing quote from a potential seller that would be great.

Jeez, something else! I need some heavy-duty clothespins, the kind with the hinges built in.

Got those covered.

I can bring you a box of polycarb scraps to dig through. I have some heavy duty clothespins I can bring and if you like them you can buy some.

Looking for a LS. If you could bring one to the war that would be awesome! Thanks.

I got a stock blue ls I will bring.

This would have been a solid ok war, but the guy wearing the gorilla suit pushed it over the edge into awesome good times!

The only con was dart making. I'm thinking of going back to bb slugs, for some reason washers are annoying me.

What the... NOOOOOOOO. I thought this was on the 28th! ARG!


Haha, having that one Sunday war tricked ya!

I was going to say reverse prone, but I don't think that's what it's actually called. A quick search told me "supine position" which I remember hearing before. But yes, supine position is better than prone. for the next war, I should bring very large shoes... no one will think of them as shields, heh.

EDIT: I don't remember who took the maverick, but there was a recon left too, with partial AR removal and teflon tape on the breach. It was taken by a kid that only has an NREV account, I don't know why.

That recon is MINE! I left it there. If you have it please PM me. Also why we need to go all fancy words? Reverse prone is easier to understand for idiots like me.

Alright you toolboxes, someone drop a list of the game types you played.

The Difference:
-Guns shoot bullets that kill people
-Blasters shoot darts that tag people

I do not play with guns.

We played carpe and capture the flag. There was also a random pistol round.
Pros-
Plenty of blasters this time, some people could borrow.
Got lots of footage with my hat cam, I filmed almost even round.
Used less than 100 of my 300 darts.
Mankato team owning in carpe.
^ Two different video perspectives of carpe.
Everyone we brought liked their blasters.
^ I made all their blasters.
Got to shoot singled titan kid, and the Gorilla
Almost all the darts were small enough to use in a hopper.
I always had a good team.
Cons
Annoying singled titan kid.
After every round more people left.
A few blasters broke.
No core or mobsticles.
Got a huge welt from point blank.


These are the videos I have uploaded so far. I do talk to others and myself, as well as hum and shout. Just warning you.

Begining round of Carpe
http://youtu.be/7Msi4ez4NPU
Capture the flag part 1
http://youtu.be/RcSCfQYOl_c
Capture the flag part 2
I have at least 3 more including anothe capture the flag and carpe.

Hello! I want to tell everyone sorry about the singled titan kid. I brought him along not knowing what a problem it would be.The titan was mine and still has the stock working oprv. I don't believe it was shooting any farther than all those snaps and +bows. Sorry again!

In the future if you guys have a problem with a blaster someone else is using you should bring it up to the war host at the war.

Obviously using singled titans is something we want to discourage, but when it's stock with maybe an 8 inch barrel it's not the end of the world if some kid who barely has the strength to trigger the orpv is running around with it.

I think people found him more annoying then anything cause i dont think i heard him shut his mouth once. also

3B ([k26] and perfect seal): 175fps
SNAP 5 with hopper: 190fps
SNAP 2 with hopper: 200fps
PAC with hopper: 200fps
Singled +bow: 210 fps
SM5k: 281.6 FPS

modded(singled) Titan: 365.2 FPS (call this about 249 miles per hour)

there is a very good reason people do not allow singled titans at wars. -if you want to get shot that hard- go play paintball.

Late recap, whooo!

+Good turnout! 15-18 people for most of the day.
+Making it through the day with very little preparation.
-Showing up late.
+Getting supplies for Carpe on the way to the war (which is why I was late).
+Getting a Tornado from Derek!
+Dan being a diddler as usual.
+Realizing that I need a new primary. My +bow, aside from the Aluminum side plates and other additions, is at its core the same as it was 2 years ago when I got it.
+The kid in the Gorilla suit was a boss.
+Derek shouting "Dance monkey, DANCE!" while everyone was firing at the kid in the gorilla suit.
-The kid using the Titan was.....I don't even need to say it. Don't worry Wired, I've seen much worse participants than that in my 3.5 years of attending wars.
+Frightening people with my National Geographic Roto Rocket. I often feel like it's more of a risk to the operator; I'm still traumatized by this incident.
+Realizing that BOSS9 is like Kip but with less ADHD. Awesome.
-Kip, Finky, Eik, and others not making it.
+Kathleen showing up for a few hours, what a trooper!
+Laughing at the horrible McDonalds service.
+Listening to gangsta rap while driving Derek and Dave to lunch.
+Buying two Arizonas on the way home. Awesome thirst quencher!
+Most of the participants were fairly cooperative, thanks everyone!

Edit: Wired, I have your maverick and the extra turret. I'll give it to you the next time I see you.
